A MUSIC legend is to play a “massive” Scottish show this summer, it has been announced.

Nile Rodgers will appear alongside Chic at the Edinburgh Playhouse on June 17.

The Le Freak singers will play one night only in the Scottish capital as part of a European tour.

Other dates for Rodgers’s tour will see him play in Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, England, Italy, and France.

Rodgers (above) has sold more than 500 million records worldwide and has worked with music legends including Daft Punk, Madonna, and Diana Ross.

He is in both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and in 2023 was named seventh on Rolling Stones' list of the greatest guitarists ever.

The press release for his "massive" Edinburgh show stated: “The co-founder of Chic, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits like Le Freak, the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic Records, and sparked the advent of hip-hop with Good Times.

“His work in the Chic organisation including We Are Family with Sister Sledge and I’m Coming Out with Diana Ross and his productions for artists like David Bowie (Let’s Dance), Madonna (Like A Virgin) and Duran Duran (The Reflex) have sold over 500 million albums and 100 million singles worldwide while his innovative, trendsetting collaborations with Daft Punk (Get Lucky), Daddy Yankee (Agua), and Beyoncé (Cuff It) reflect the vanguard of contemporary hits.”
